Section 6.1.1.3 says:

Example reselecting the currently selected newsgroup:

   [C] GROUP misc.test
   [S] 211 1234 234 567 misc.test
   [C] STAT 444
   [S] 223 444 <123456@example.net> retrieved
   [C] GROUP misc.test
   [S] 211 1234 234 567 misc.test
   [C] STAT
   [S] 223 234 <different@example.net> retrieved

It should say:

Example reselecting the currently selected newsgroup:

   [C] GROUP misc.test
   [S] 211 123 234 567 misc.test
   [C] STAT 444
   [S] 223 444 <123456@example.net> retrieved
   [C] GROUP misc.test
   [S] 211 123 234 567 misc.test
   [C] STAT
   [S] 223 234 <different@example.net> retrieved

Notes:

Section 6.1.1.2 mentions that "if the group is not empty, the estimate MUST be at least the actual number of articles available and MUST be no greater than one more than the difference between the reported low and high water marks".

The count 1234 is not correct because there are less than 567-234+1=334 articles in the newsgroup.
